Lovin Life from Michigan    May 10, 2017




The house was beautiful and convenient. We were a small party of 4 and had more than enough room. We loved the convenience and privacy of having our own pool. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen well stocked. The blender was perfect for making those frozen drinks by the pool. The house is in a great location close to all the activities going on in Destin. We would love to stay here again in the future.

Exactly What we Expected!    Oct 09, 2016




The house was everything we expected from the photos and info given. Sherry, the owner was so helpful with pre-booking questions, both her and Kathy followed up throughout the entire process, even while we were there, to make sure everything was perfect. The Pool was clean, warmed quickly, and just perfect. Our 4 year old swam everyday in addition to the easy ocean access. The beach was pristine, everyone takes wonderful care of the beach, Sunday was so calm and the water was so clear I could see the bottom as far as I could walk out. We saw stingrays, jellys, and tons of fish in the water. The sand was white, the water emerald green, was postcard picture perfect. The community was so friendly and we felt very safe during our stay. Was nice not having to worry about walking around, great people! The house has everything you need, cox cable with movie channels, wifi, fully stocked kitchen with everything you could need to cook with, plenty of toys for the pool and beach, dvds, throw blankets, etc. I can't imagine asking for anything else. We would recommend the house to anyone and would definitely return. Thanks so much for making our stay a memorable one!

The home was everything we hoped it would be and more. We have come to Destin 19 years and stayed in lots of places and we rank this at the top. Beds were very comfortable. Everything you needed in kitchen. Close to beach. Lots of beach toys and chairs and umbrellas. Last but not least, the pool was AWESOME!!! Very clean home. Great gated neighborhood. Will come again

Thank You!!    Sep 09, 2016




Had such an amazing time! My family was extremely satisfied with the home and how easy it was for my Grandmother get around. It was my first trip to Destin, and we will definitely be back! If you're looking for something to do, I highly suggest going on the Dolphin Tour with AJ's Seaquest! Nick was great and it was an amazing time! Also enjoyed parasailing with Boogie's! As far as food, you can't go wrong with Jordano's pizza!!! Can't wait to come back!!!
